It originally thought that the te of Aphaia was was built in honour of Athena, whose figure dominated the two pediments. During excavations by German archaeologists in 1901, however, an inscription was found referring to the name of the local goddess Apha making it clear that the temple was dedicated to Aphaia and not to Athena. According to myth, Aphaia, who is identified with Britomartis, daughter of Zeus and Karme, was loved by Minos and, to escape his attention, she jumped into the sea and emerged in Aegina, where she became "invisible (Aphaia) in a grove. She hid in a cave, probably the one on the north-east corner of the Archaic enclosure, in which have been found many terracotta figurines and other objects dating from the Mycenaean period In historical times, three temples were built at different periods on the same site near the area associated with the prehistoric cult. Of the first temple, which is dated to the early 6th century BC, only traces of the foundations survive. The second temple was larger and had an altar in front of the east side. The surviving temple is the third which was built about 500 BC. It is a Doric periptera temple with six columns on the ends and twelve on the sides.

A hidden gem often forgotten by travellers, the Sanctuary of Afea is one of the ancient wonders of Greece located in Aegina in the Saronic Archipelago.

The myth of this temple was believed that it form an isosceles triangle or rather a 'sacred triangle' in a straight line with the Parthenon in Athens and the Temple of Poisedon in Sounion. #lifeofadventure #letsgosomewhere #travel #traveling #travelphotography #passportready #aroundtheworld #travelpic #travelingram #instavacation #instatraveling #seetheworld #globetrotter #mytravelgram #iamatraveler #igtravel #discoverearth #travelstoke #travelawesome #roamtheplanet #beautifuldestination #europe #neverstopexploring #welivetoexplore #greece #aegina #ancientruins #templeofaphaia #architecture #exquisite_greece

Some favs from yesterday at the beach 🏖 😎 @scammells4jesus @laddserwat #greece #aegina #beach #beachday #sunshine #sunburnsfordays

Back in the Piraeus studio for a couple of days so I got to work on heads I've left here. Hadn't worked on this one in a while. You can see the progress if you go like....15 posts ago. For some reason, this brown paper always comes out a different colour in the photos and when I try to adjust it the drawing doesn't look like in real life. Sorry folks. Plus, the colour shows up different on each device I try it on....so....try not to worry about it too much and just look at the drawing 😸
